STANDING OVATION FOR UK CAST

After weeks of rehearsals and being put through their paces by Director and Choreographer Joey McKneely, the new UK cast just needed an audience and boy did they get it! West Side Story opened at the Liverpool Empire last night to an auditorium filled to the rafters, the audience lifting the roof with applause when the cast took their bow. 

Jerome Robbins created the wonderful choreography, Joey McKneely has protected it and with his direction, the cast have made it their own. This is a tour not to be missed!
